  10. Ask someone from the team to walk through the UI particular application where the newcomer will work (for example ui-data-import) on one of the testing environments (e.g. folio-testing). This would help newcomer with understanding what things has already been done and would help with further estimation for the similar stories on the planning.
  11. Newcomer should ask for the resources/information regarding domain topics the particular application consists of. For example data-import application deals with job profiles, match profiles, action profiles. For a newcomer those therms say nothing so further clarification is needed.
  12. Note for an estimation process. All stories which are ready to be estimated with PO on the grooming meeting need to be analyzed by developers before the meeting in order to focus more on estimation and on resolving question during the meeting. If there are not enough information, the questions within the team should be raised (for example client-server communication questions, data format and response statuses expected by UI from the server, etc.) and if needed additional tasks should be created and linked with appropriate tasks.
